Do you believe in happy endings
Or the mending of human hearts
Oh, I believe in both I'm certain
Because these curtains are state of the art

If you'd occasionally happen to spy on me
You'd think I'm having one sided conversations
But I hear him talking back
You'd think I may even lack some sanity
But maybe I can't let go

So I'll say I finally wrote your song at last
Sorry that this one came out so sad
Every tear I had was shed for the man
That gave me a better sense of life and meaning
To motivate there's no short cuts to success
I'll wait for his guiding hands.
My guardian angel until the very end

I see a cold seat on your couch
Where I remember
That just four years ago around December
You sat me down and held me next to you so close
How I long for things to be restored
To back when times weren't quite this hard
And record that song you sang to me
Never rang so loud before
Oh, what I'd give for just another hug from you
You may be gone, but love will never die
So I say

So I'll say I finally wrote your song at last
Sorry that this one came out so sad
Every tear I had was shed for the man
That gave me a better sense of life and meaning
To motivate "there's no short cuts to success"
I'll wait for his guiding hands.
My guardian angel until the very end

Tears can't run dry
When I start to cry
When I hear people speak of how you'd be so proud of me
And how I hope this song will reach your ears
About some of my darkest fears
I once was gone but now it's clear
Where I go I know that you'll be near

So I'll say I finally wrote your song at last
Sorry that this one came out so sad
Every tear I had was shed for the man
That gave me a better sense of life and meaning
To motivate "there's no short cuts to success"
I'll wait for his guiding hands.
My guardian angel until the very end
Oh, until the very end
My guardian angel until the very end
My guardian angel until the very end

    Song MeaningCody Carson (the lead singer and songwriter) wrote this song as a tribute to his dad, who died of cancer when Cody was only 12 years old. In the lyrics, he describes him reminiscing and talking to him in the sky, and believing he is Cody's "guardian angel". He thinks about all the fun they never had, and tries to remember how it was when everything was fine.
